Design lesson: Timeless media room

A timeless media room with farmhouse flair.

This timeless media room designed by Halina Catherine emulates a European farmhouse - with a few extra layers of warmth. Here's how to recreate the look.


1 Scope out seating that matches your room’s base palette to give prominence to other standout features, such as this space’s herringbone floor and coffered ceiling, both made from reclaimed wood.

2 You can never go wrong with a wicker basket. It’s a classic decor piece that lends country charm to a space and is ideal for storage. Win-win!

3 A grid-like gallery wall can be just as eye-catching as an asymmetrical arrangement. For a creative and personal touch, frame segments of a favourite photo or map until the big picture is revealed.



4 Create a beautiful focal point with a built-in media unit that conceals unsightly electronics and minimizes clutter, making it equal parts practical and decorative.




5 A sophisticated space is all in the details, as evidenced by this pretty vignette of showy blooms, a vintage-look tray and some display-worthy reads.
